“Beautifull room”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

The beautifull room is in a house with 4 more rooms. The man of the house was very friendly and give many ideas to discover Knysna and the surroundings . The only thing you have to know is that a walk to the town is too far, ca 5 kilometer

It's a pity that we couldn't stay longer...
A nice place, wonderful view off the laguna, friendly welcome, cordial hosts and a delicious breakfast with the best omelet of South Africa.
We got useful advises for every day.
Thank you to Janet and Derek.

Had a very comfortable couple of nights. Very comfy bed, nice large bathroom, nice to have fridge in room. Breakfast extensive and delicious. We liked the location; quiet residential area, but only a few minutes drive to everything. Pool a bit chilly, but nicely positioned to get sun most of day. Would definitely stay here again if we returned to Knysna.

We very much enjoyed staying here! Derek and his wife are great hosts. The atmosphere is very warm, breakfast is excellent, the rooms are modern, friendly and very clean. We can also recommend Mo's - a nice garden restaurant close to Amber guest lodge if you want to go out for dinner.

My husband and I stayed in Amber three times and each time we were very sad to leave. First, the location is spectacular. Even though it is not in the down town area, it is on a sunny and worm side of the hill. The view from each room is amazing, especially in the morning. Second, the breakfast is great. You have a menu to choose from and some fresh pastry every morning. You gotta try Janet's whole gain blueberry muffins. They are to die for! Third, the people that own the place, Janet and Derek, are extremely nice and knowledgable of Knysna and thus very helpful with their advice concerning sightseeings and other things to do around the town.

Amber is very clean, nice and tidy. Any time I come to Knysna, Amber will be my number 1 choice of B&B!

We have just had 3 nights at Amber guest lodge and what a wonderful time we had. Janet and Derek were so welcoming, and informative. The rooms or should I say suites are lovely with separate bedrooms, bathroom and lounge, complimentary water and a good breakfast choice each morning, usually accompanied by some fresh baking from Janet. Excellent value and a good location to explore knysna or plettenberg from. Would definitely stay again.

outstanding hospitality.very informative host. Pleasure to be treated in such a warm manner. The accommodation would certainly be our first choice in knysna and as a family we were swept off our feet with the neatness as well as an excellently constructed building . The view was also great!
